his first trip to israel as president, barack obama this week issued a strong call for peace in the region. the president repeatedly pledged his support for israel's security but he also said israel will thrive only when there is an independent palestine. so far, there's been little recent progress on peace talks between the two sides. also this week, obama visited israel's holocaust memorial yad vashem. and he toured the ancient church of the nativity in bethlehem, the traditional birthplace of jesus. >>> meanwhile, in washington, as debates over the federal budget continued, religious leaders gathered outside the capitol to once again demand a budget they described as moral and fair. the group brought along fish and loaves of bread, a reference to jesus's miraculous feeding of thousands of people with a small amount of food. arguing a moral budget does not take a miracle, the speakers urged lawmakers not to cut poverty programs or give tax breaks to the wealthy and corporations. >> just like in the scriptures where jesus blessed and broke the loaves and fish and said "share

exercise. one of the pilots was killed. four other people were injured. >> barack obama was in israel for his first official visit. he also visited the occupied territories. not everyone in the west bank was pleased to see him. he had strong words of support for the palestinian cause when he gave a speech to young israelis in jerusalem. thatraelis must recognize continued settlement activity is counterproductive to the cause of peace, and an independent palestine must be viable with real borders that have to be drawn. put yourself in their shoes. look at the world through their eyes. it is not fair that a palestinian child cannot grow up in a state of their own. living their entire lives with the presence of a foreign army that controls the movements, not just of theirs young people but their parents and grandparents everyday. >> obama also made clear that america's alliance with israel is eternal. many palestinians were disappointed that despite those words, he did not demand that israel stop building settlements. peace between israelis and palestinians look as far off as ever. durin
, but it is possible. >> paul: welcome to journ"the journal editorial report", i'm paul bgigot. that's president obama in israel and the first thawing the often frosty relationship with benjamin netanyahu. is it a turning point in the region? let's ask dan henninger and global view columnist bret stevens. so, bret, the big news out of this, or at least at the surface, that a new good feeling between prime minister y netanyahu and president obama. real or does it makes a difference? >> real, and it's definitely good in terms of the optics, president obama spent the first four years trying to put as much distance between him avenue sn the israelis as he could. it didn't serve american interests or anyone's interest. now he's there and talking about my friend bb. maybe it's not sincere, but it's creating a perception of greater closeness. that's a good thing. israelis respond better when they're being held than when they're being scolded. no question, the speech went over well. the real question is whether the president has a realistic vision for-- >> well, he raised the prospects of this peace agreement
and for that reason i think that despite the optics of a happy visit, the differences between israel and the obama administration remains. >> prime minister netanyahu thinks that iran could get it done by this summer. president says one year from now. when they are together does that now say look they are going to get a bomb and we are going to launch an attack whether you like it or not and what does the president say and -- what do you think will happen? >> well, i think they exchange intelligence and i do think that despite the -- difficulties of the personal relationship between obama and netanyahu, i'm sure these discussions are conduct order a very prank and professional basis but countries, vital nation security interests are involved. i think both men recognize the personal can't get in the way of that. i don't think that there is any doubt that israel sees a much shorter time frame, especially given its own who are limited military capabilities. whoever is right on the intelligence and must be clear we don't have perfect intelligence. iran could be a lot closer than anybody. we have great
initially condemned him. it erupted in president obama's trip to israel, when hecklers broke through his speech with cries of support for pollard. further, some pollard watchers perceived anert at damage control in the president's decision not to address the kineset, where they play rough. we know before he left for the middle-east, mr. obama said he would not pardon mr. pollard -- immediately. we don't know what was said privately, but it tempts us to explore the unknown unknowns and wonder if a secret deal was made for release. perhaps when the president has more flexibility. the sting of a friend's betrayal is the stuff of shakespeare. amongst all foes that are friends should be the worst, he said. this is the theme of the pollard affair, our truest ally, behaving with such guile. rarely discussed is the deception required by spying, even on one's friends. mr. pollard showed little remorse at his court proceedings and renounced his u.s. citizenship and became a citizen of israel. this did not help his case. he claimed he gave away secrets the u.s. would not disclose to israel corks he
you. it is my pleasure. >> i would like to get your take on how president obama's visit to israel played out there? >> i think it was an excellent visit. we called for four years for president obama to come to israel and finally he did come as a president. during his first visit, egypt, saudi arabia, turkey. the visit was very important to the israeli people and i think also for the president who appealed to the israelis directly and talked to them and i think here before the passover hollida who will holie are pleased with the visit of president obama. >> shannon: you said we are prepared to talk and hold negotiations with the palestinians without any preconditions but in the government there are many who believe there is no one on the other side who is interested in advancing the peace process. do you think president obama made any process to that end to giving you a partner to discuss this with? >> well, unfortunately, it is not enough to speak nicely. you need to find a real viable partner and we don't find any. the very same day that president obama landed in israel the hamas

obama made a strategic decision to warm up relations with israel at this time. you know what, even if you have the best friend in the white house, and israelis look fondly upon the period of president clinton or the period especially of president regan. ultimately israelis have to make the choices. winston churchill people said was a great friend of israel and came to the founding in the 1920s and supported the zionist cause of the return of the jews to the homeland. he didn't send the royal air force to bomb the tracks, the railroad track to auschwitz. ifial detects its very existences is threatened israel will have to do what is necessary to deitself. hopefully we won't have is to get to that point but israel must reserve the right to defend itself by itself. that is a clause that president obama used in a number of his speeches. >> mike: we hope it doesn't come to that but i is have every confidence if it does israel will act always in its best interest which is really the best interest of the world. dore, thanks for joining us. a real pleasure. >>> this week, colorado became th

. >> question, was president obama's speech to college students in israel and the trip itself designed to reset u.s.- israeli relations that were badly strained and president obama's first term? >> yeah, john, and you're right, it's an israeli-u.s. reset, and i think it was a great success. i think the president's speech was outstanding to the young israelis. i think it was full of realism and idealism. what he has done, he has walked away from the idea that israel has to stop building settlements, and as a reality there's not going to be any palestinian state as long as you have the president meeting with netanyahu, lieberman, and those folks in power, but i do think there's been a reset in relations with israel. but john with the whole middle east, look at muslim brotherhood in egypt, hamas, gaza, the jordanian king is in trouble, syria is about to collapse in anarchy. you've got hezbollah in lebanon. i think that whole area is moving the other direction. if i were the president of the united states, i believe what he wants to do and ought to do is get out of dodge. >> eleanor. >> i can't rem

there regarding president obama's trip. it was a glowing success in israel but it was for the palestinians. how do you read it? >> well, of course, the objectives and expectations were limited and i think the white house wisely did that because there was no prospect for an immediate breakthrough. but i think the president did a good job at reaching several target audiences. first and foremost, the people of israel whose support will be necessary for any government that takes actions that are needed to bring the conflict to an end. second to the palestinian leadership and to their people in making clear that the united states, while fully committed to israel's security, is also fully committed to the creation of an independent and viable palestinian state in the belief that that is good for israel's security and good for the people of palestine. and then thirdly, i think the president wanted to send a broader message to the region, and particularly to our adversaries, that the united states remains fully committed to the region. i think he you can seeded in all of them in getting a turkey-israeli r
